Based on a suggestion from a friend, I found that quinoa really improves with a bit of toasting before adding water. Since we're not real big on raw garlic, I sauteed a bit of minced garlic in some oil then added the quinoa and toasted a bit. Then added water and proceeded with the recipe as suggested. Really delicious recipe.
Quinoa & Smoked Tofu Salad
We took the tangy fresh flavors of tabbouleh and paired them with smoky tofu and quinoa to create a main-dish salad that's perfect served on a bed of greens. This salad is jam-packed with heart-healthy ingredients—whole grains (quinoa), legumes (soy-based tofu) and plenty of vegetables.
8 Reviews for Quinoa & Smoked Tofu Salad
This was super easy to shop for, easy to make, and deliciously healthy! Skip the take-out lunch- make this a day ahead and store in the fridge, it's good when served cold too. Awesome combination of veggies and herbs.
This was delicious! I will definitely make it again. It was relatively easy to make. I couldn't find shelf stable tofu, so I used fresh tofu (stir fried and cooled it before adding). It turned out great! This is one of the few dishes that my husband (an amazing cook) hasn't said, "this needs something..."
I made this with shrimp instead of tofu. I sauteed the shrimp with the garlic and parsley, served over a bed of mixed greens. I also added a little red wine vinegar and sugar to the dressing. Great, quick, & healthy!
